In 1861, the Civil War severs Michael Morkan from everything he loves and all that defines him--from his son, Leighton; from his love, Cora Slade; and from the quarry he owns in Springfield, Missouri. Forced to give his black powder to the Missouri State Guard, he finds himself indelibly labeled a rebel traitor and is imprisoned in St. Louis. Back in the Ozarks, Leighton joins the Federal Home Guards in hopes of paroling his father. When Leighton finally frees him, the two are pitched in a last gambit for their quarry and for the legacy of the name Morkan.

As the sequel to Morkan’s Quarry, The Teeth of the Souls tells the story of a marriage betrayed, a lifelong and secret love, and an Ozarks city riven by an Easter lynching. The story begins just after the Civil War when Leighton Shea Morkan, son of Irish immigrants, marries Patricia Grünhaagen Weitzer, daughter of a German banking family. Yet he can’t let go of his childhood love and wartime confidante, the house hand and former slave, Judith. Both unions produce children, one a shrouded secret, and one the heir to the Morkan legacy: the limestone quarries of Springfield, Missouri, and the bloody past, what Judith calls “The Teeth of the Souls.” Grounded in broad historical research and spanning Missouri’s reconstruction, vigilantism, and fall from grace, The Teeth of the Souls chronicles the violent melding of immigrant strains—Irish, German, Scots-Irish, and African American—into the fabric of the Ozarks.

Old Texas, Alabama, 1911. Fernab und inmitten abgebrannter Maisfelder gelegen, leidet die kleine Gemeinde nicht nur unter den Folgen des Bürgerkrieges. E.O. Smonk, ein schießwütiger, einäugiger Farmer, tyrannisiert das Städtchen, insbesondere Dutzende Witwen und junger Mädchen, an denen er sich vergeht. Als ihm der Prozess gemacht werden soll, kann Smonk dem Lynchmob entkommen. Doch es scheint eine Verbindung zu geben zwischen Smonk, dem geheimnisvollen religiösen Witwen-Kult und der Truppe um einen christlichen Hilfssheriff, der eine mordende minderjährige Hure entlang der Golfküste verfolgt. Auf den Spuren von Faulkner und McCarthy kombiniert US-Autor Tom Franklin Elemente des Southern Gothic und des Western noir und legt in seiner Groteske die Wurzeln der angezählten amerikanischen Nation bloß, die nicht selten Freiheit mit dem Recht des Stärkeren assoziert.
